Welcome to a special edition of Fly On The Wall group postings, hosted by Karen of Baking In A Tornado. Nine bloggers are inviting you into their homes today to be a fly on the wall. As I mentioned in an earlier post, I first began writing the FOW's two years ago because I wanted a way to remember all of the crazy stuff that came out of the mouths of my family members. I participate in FOW posts 12 times a year, and enjoy sharing the "best of the best" from each year with you. Today I'm recalling some of my favorite remarks that were shared on the blog in 2014.
"Whenever I take my laptop outside, I can't Wi-Fi. All I get is the spinning wheel of death on my screen."
"You need to do something about that loose toenail. It looks like a tortilla chip on your foot."
"Why on earth did you buy a red star for the top of the tree? We now have a brothel Christmas tree."
"I hate dieting. My stomach is so hungry, it's eating itself."
"You told me this spray tan in a can stuff works. So how come I look like a patchwork quilt?"
"Didn't you read the directions? You're supposed to spray it from 6 feet away."
"How is that humanly possible? My arms aren't 6 feet long!"
" I can't enjoy the Christmas feast this year without feeling guilty. You've demonized all the calories."
"Everyone knows you're the twisted branch in the family tree."
"Do you think the IRS will let us use your food baby as a tax deduction?"
"We need to ask my mom for some parenting advice on our son. He's making me crazy."
"Isn't she the one who tied your brother to a clothesline in the backyard while she did the laundry?"
"Like I said, she has the best advice when it comes to raising boys."
"You're really good at crafting words into stupid."
"Stop rubbing my leg with your wolverine toes."
"Note to self: Just because the zumba teacher is twerking in class does not mean that I have to. My back will never be the same."
"Oh look! The dog is dragging her butt across the carpet. If she picks up enough dust particles, I won't have to vacuum. She's a pug butt Swifter."
"Hangover is such a harsh word. Let's just say I have the wine flu."
"His snoring is driving me crazy. He sounds like a truffle-sniffing pig when he sleeps."
"You would have made a good pirate."
"Why? Because of my thirst for rum?"
"No---because of the grunting noises you make when you eat meat….and the fact that you haven't showered in three days."
"I think it's time to go shopping. My underwear drawer looks like it has been ravaged by moths."
"My liver better hurry up and regenerate because I've been drinking a lot lately."
"Sprinkle Miracle Grow on it. Better yet, start a liver harvesting farm: cornfed and hormone free."
"If I didn't know any better, I'd swear your mother dropped you on your head when you were born."
"He has an intestine longer than I-95….which explains why his poop is the size of a nuclear sub."
"It's obvious you're a holiday hoarder. You need a decoration intervention."
"Every dinner at the Doyle house is like a Man vs Food episode."
"Mom, can I borrow twenty bucks?"
"I don't have it. I just donated all my money to the alpaca rescue fund."
"I had no idea our granddaughter could scream so loud. She sounds like she needs a priest to come in and perform an exorcism."
"If you eat too much couscous, the grains become time bombs. Once they hit the bottom of your gut, they detonate."
"One of the things on my bucket list is to do the running with the bulls in Pamplona, Spain."
"At your age, it will be more like running with the mules."
